Raiders QB Carson Palmer Will Miss Chargers Game With Cracked Ribs


The Oakland Raiders will be without their starting QB Carson Palmer for the season finale against the San Diego Chargers due to cracked ribs and a bruised lung. Palmer suffered the injury in the first quarter against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. With Palmer sidelined, the Raiders will turn to Matt Leinart and Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. The Chargers are coming off of a game in which they sacked backup QB Greg McElroy 11 times. That could have been Palmer’s last game as a Raider.

    Whoah. not so fast. i know the raiders are a bad team, but they are ranked 8th in passing and we are ranked 18th in passing yards. Now i don’t know how good Lineart is but aside from the one hit palmer took, they do have the ability to protect the QB. even if the Qb doesn’t have the ability to hit his receivers.
    i look forward to the bolts to win, despite that.
